I used Fedex, UPS or DHL to send fraudulent documents. Is that mail fraud?

Yes it is. Just because you did not use USPS, does not make you exempt from committing the fraud. Fedex, DHL and UPS are known as commercial interstate carriers. In 1994 Congress expanded the use of the mails to include any parcel that is "sent or delivered by a private or commercial interstate carrier." As a result of these amendments, the mail fraud statute has become a broad act for prosecution of dishonest and fraudulent activities, as long as those crimes involve the mails or an interstate carrier. 

If you used one of these carriers to send fraudulent documents to someone, contact the defense team at Goldstein and Bashner for representation you can trust. Our attorney Anne D’Elia has a thorough understanding of fraud laws which make her an extremely valuable asset in your defense.  Call our office today at (516) 222-4000 or fill out our webform to discuss your needs.
